Event Details

About this training

In this virtual 2-hour training, Eden Himidian, LCSW and Elizabeth Aljets, LCPC will address the profound impact of perinatal loss. Perinatal loss is a uniquely challenging experience that is often misunderstood and silenced in our culture. Given the multifaceted nature of perinatal loss, we will be dedicating our time to honor and understand this kind of loss and pathways to healing in the context of psychotherapy. We will cover the various types of losses and their rates of occurrence, mood, anxiety or trauma-related disorders that may follow, therapeutic approaches, and healing rituals. We will shed light on this often daunting topic and help psychotherapists increase their comfort in treating the grieving parent.

  • Understand various types of perinatal losses and their occurrence rates
